What Just Happened Out There!

Two posts in one day, wow!  Pictures of the hounds modeling their Christmas attire and from this morning when they were ready to go out in the snow.  Poor hounds, they were not happy.  The snow was so deep at 6:30 am, they wouldn't even go off the deck.  Mommy forgot to tuck their snoods inside their Toastie Coats and the wind was so fierce their snoods were almost blown inside out.  They have the look of "What just happened out there", when they came back in.  Enjoy!

Paper Ornaments

With all the hussle and bussle of Christmas, it's been a while since I have had a chance to post anything to my blog.

I made a couple of paper ornaments using stamps from Holly Berry House.  These were made in several layers and lots and lots of glitter.

Christmas Eve I decided to make an ornament using one of my Nestabilities that I didn't have a chance to play with yet and the Play It Again Sam precolored image from Sassy Cheryl's fit the ornament perfectly.  For that ornament I used some real shiny gold metallic paper, probably has a name for that paper just at this moment I don't know what it is.  I did have to cut out the space to place the image with an Xacto knife.  Now that is scary, me and sharp objects, not a good mix!

The pictures may not be the greatest but the ornaments look so much nicer in real life and they looked adorable on my tree.
